I want to be evil! Can I be evil? I'd be such a good evil villain!

I guess I'll go and subscribe to Reddit so I can vote.

At least we got second, which is nice.  :D  On a different note, there's a fantasy site called "pornoskitch"? It's the first time I have noticed it and I was like wait, what?

I guess Tor.com can be considered our rival, last year they also won over us  ::)

And The Mirror's Truth, by @Michael R. Fletcher won in Best Self-Published! Gotta gush that I also nominated that!

Good that F-F came second and Tor is a worthy winner. Maybe next year it will be FF's turn.

I was pleased Tim Gerard Reynolds won the Award for Best Related Work as narrator for many audible books, but in particular as he reads all Michael J Sullivan's books. He does every book proud and gives Royce, Hadrian and the others exactly the right voices.   

Another well deserved award was Best Artwork going to Marc Simonetti for the beautiful ancient tree on cover of MJS's Age of Myth.

It's hard to compete with a huge professional site like Tor (professional meaning they actually pay for their content and have much more content, not sure how many posts a day, but a good number).  So coming in second to Tor is still great, especially for a volunteer run site.


At least we got second, which is nice.  :D  On a different note, there's a fantasy site called "pornokitsch"? It's the first time I have noticed it and I was like wait, what?
